‘Glee’ Cast (Blaine), ‘It’s Not Unusual’ – Song Review
Nobody brings back a classic like 'Glee' does. On the Sept. 20 season premiere episode, 'The Purple Piano Project,' the FOX series will revive Tom Jones' 1965 smash, 'It's Not Unusual,' with a little help from the lead Warbler, Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss).
This old school ditty comes back to life in the hands of Blaine, and it's even more vibrant being that it's most likely sung in Kurt's direction. Despite it's upbeat nature (which, let's face it, makes you want to swing dance like you never have before), this track is actually a little depressing.
Blaine belts the lyrics, which read like a jealous boyfriend's last words, without effort:
"It's not unusual to be loved by anyone / It's not unusual to have fun with anyone / But when I see you hanging about with anyone / It's not unusual to see me cry / Oh, I wanna die."
We can only assume that Blaine is struggling with the absence of his leading man at Dalton Academy. Not to mention, now that Kurt is no longer a Warbler, he's hot competition. Perhaps the rumors that Blaine will join forces with New Directions and transfer to McKinley High are true? Guess we will have to wait and see!
In the meantime, we'll keep pressing play on this fierce new 'Glee' cast track.
